US Naturalized Citizen of the Day - Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt was born in 1906 in Germany. She was an influential German Jewish political theorist. She has often been described as a philosopher, although she refused that label on the grounds that philosophy is concerned with "man in the singular." She described herself instead as a political theorist because her work centers on the fact that "men, not Man, live on the earth and inhabit the world."
